Critical Praise

SWORN marks Castillo's move from romantic suspense to straight mystery, and judging by this novel, the move is a good one…quot;

—Library Journal (starred review)

Adept at creating characters with depth and nuance, Castillo smoothly integrates their backstories into a well-paced plot that illuminates the divide between the Amish and ‘English’ worlds.quot;

—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Castillo’s hardcover debut should come with a warning: Pick up when you have time to finish. Excitement, danger, mystery, a fascinating setting and a conflicted heroine make this a book you won’t put down.quot;

—Romantic Times (Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars)
